  • Of course, why do you think that the Catholic Church is successful in recruiting members in Africa, much of Africa, is backward, uneducated, violent, ignorant and disease ridden, wonderful ground for recruiting, as is ISIS in recruiting the often uneducated, unemployed ignorant young. And children are ignorant, uneducated, often feeling guilty, easy to persuade (many of these “recruiters” are psychopaths’ noted for their charismatic qualities, at which the bottom line is power and control), is this any different than what the Jesuits said about children getting them at an early age? Also, around the world, children are dying of starvation, abuse, sold into slavery, human trafficking, so it goes, and has gone since the Children’s Crusades in the Middle Ages. They prey on children’s ignorance and innocence, nothing has changed. Always remember that organized religion is a business and it needs members to continue in biz. I wonder what will happen to organized religion when the human species begins to feel the full impact of global weather change: more violent weather, tornados, hurricanes, floods, drought, intense heat, rising oceans levels, in many areas or the world, the disappearance of island nations, Bangladesh, food shortages, starvation, lack of water, the disappearance on the shoreline etc. What then will science have to say to these people, when the panic begins, for no imaginary god or prayer, or church is going to save many of them. The human species will die in the millions and if we continue on as we have done, into oblivion, extinction… so it goes….

    Yet another consequence of budget cuts in public education. One can always count on the religious proselytizers for exploiting every little weakness of the education system and legal jurisprudence to spread their mental poison to vulnerable children. This gross and insidious form of child abuse has been going on for centuries and is sadly far from over.

  • What should be realized is that the more the many organizations such as the Dawkins Foundation and other organizations and countries and cultures reveal how ridiculous organized religion and the Bible et al for an explanation of the natural world, are the more there will be a push back, i.e., targeting the ignorant, and the young, what is happening is what occurs when many things begin to go to extinction, i.e. a need for an increase in reinforcement by any means. Look at the recent history of the atheist/agnostic/humanistic/reason movements, and you will see what I mean it is all over the Internet, the news, blogs, books, and social media etc. Those “coming out”, increases daily.

    So, should the “push back” be seen as futile, as something that can be disregarded, because of the daily increase in those “coming out”? Do you think there is any danger in the push back? Might it succeed if allowed to continue?

  • This is perhaps a typical example of cognitive dissonance in the religious mentality:

    Imagining that He that created everything, and hears all your prayers, fails to hear you misrepresenting his work.

    “After school why don’t you go to a shopping mall, why don’t you buy a white candle. Let your husband light it on your wedding night as a sign of the purity that you’ve maintained from this day to the day he lifts your veil.”

    Creepy scary!

  • I agree. Religion promotes overpopulation. Overpopulation reduces educational opportunities. Less education leads to greater vulnerability to religious indoctrination. And so it goes, marching us backward to the dark ages when plagues and diseases are blamed on demons and “satanic” behavior.

  • Yes. Then it continues on a downward spiral. Uneducated parents ridicule teachers and the educational system. These children then go to school with little respect for their teachers or their fellow students.

    In their ignorance parents sexually abuse their children psychologically, especially their young girls by telling them that sex is evil (the original sin). All of this opens the door to a vulnerability to pulpit pounding religious fanatics.
